I put the Maxx-Lift 2" kit on my new to me 2012 E350. Current tires are stock 245/75R16's. Looks like there's room for a little larger tire now.

Hello,

I have a 2013 E-350 and was interested in the same spacer kit you mentioned.

I was wondering, if you have had any issues with the RSC and what you had to do for alignment after the install?

Thanks

After installing the coil spacers I did a rough alignment for toe-in, then drove it to the alignment shop. They measured for and installed the aftermarket cams that get the caster and camber in to spec. Drives perfectly, just put 500 miles on it last weekend running 75-80 MPH across the desert from SoCal to Havasu. No issue with RSC. I have some 255/75R17's I'm putting on it as soon as my new rims arrive.

Bought some 17x9 wheels -12 offset. Mounted these 32" tall 255/75R17 tires I had to see how well they fit with the 2" lift before I buy the Mud Terrains I want. They barely rub the back of the fender opening on a tight turn. In normal driving they aren't a problem at all.

This height tire also works well with my stock 3.73 gearing. Power loss is not noticeable.

But before I buy the permanent tires, I'm seriously considering buying the 4" Lift from Weldtec Designs with the longer Radius Arms. Moving the front tires an inch forward coupled with another 2" of lift would allow for 33" tires.

Anyway, at least this setup moves my van out of the Van-Pool look it had with the stock rims.

Looks great..

Iv got similar as you shadetreevanguy with offset rims and 32" 265/75R16 tires. They also rub full lock going into driveways etc even after a rubber hammer inner fender message.. I think the clearance becomes less the more caster you have also..
I don't like it, but I'm not about to go back to stock.

I think my tires are rubbing on the vertical body flange at the very bottom.

Those longer radius arms are interesting. They got me wondering and looking at the stock arms and how with a little ingenuity and a couple big *** washers, you could lengthen the ford arms maybe 1/2" which might be a better alternative than body work.

I had the same thought, but haven't crawled under to look at it yet. I'm going to pursue this idea. Perhaps up to an inch is possible. That may push the tires into the bumper at that point, but the bumper could be easily trimmed and/or spaced forward.

Putting more miles on it the past couple days, it rubs in quite a few parking lot situations. Not hard, so maybe the 1/2" to inch push could be the answer.

Still love the look of the Weldtec 4" & 6" lifts, and will probably still opt to install their kit. Meanwhile, this will be an interesting endeavor.

Wonder what this will do to my alignment? I'll measure toe-in before and after the spacers.

wheel spacers won't affect toe to any significant degree
they just tear up bearings

Please take a picture or two of how you lengthened your radius arms. I imagine lengthening them will throw the alignment way out.. Maybe not.

Iv read a little about changing the radius arm bushings and it doesn't sound to bad if you remove the bracket on the frame. Getting it back together may not be as easy though.

I had the radius arm disconnected at the front while installing the lifting blocks. It was easy to move everything around with the tire off and no weight on the suspension. I think it may be pretty simple to remove the bracket and add the washers. I'll let you know.

I run 235/85/16s on my 2003 E350 clubwagon, they are around 32" depending on the brand but they are not as wide and I'm using the pre 92 van wheels that are slightly narrower also. 245/75/16s are OEM on E350s, the 265s should have lots of clearance.
my van is a high mile diesel also on original springs.

I'm running 30x9.50's on my stock 2wd E150.No rubbing at all. I know this doesn't help but it's what came on mine when i bought it and thought it was cool that they fit.
